The Building Committee is a consultative body which examines and takes care of matters dealing with the physical buildings of St. George and St. John the Divine. For inquiries, reach out to Rod at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have been a member of St. John the Divine Parish since shortly after I moved to London in 2016. I've been an active member in the Knights of Columbus, Saint Vincent de Paul, and the Christmas Decorating Committee. My involvement in the building committee comes through my role as a relief lawn maintenance snow removal worker as well as my role as a custodian.
My wife, Eileen, and I have been parishioners at St. George for approximately four years, after relocating to our home in South London. Formerly parishioners of St. Michael's Parish, we relocated from Toronto in 1992. I have an engineering background and served as a civilian technical resource for the Informatics Branch of the RCMP in Ontario for 35 years. Upon retiring from the RCMP, I was employed as a technical specialist for the National Centre of Audiology at Western University for 15 years. My wife and I have enjoyed designing and building our five homes, and I am looking forward to putting my professional talents to use as part of the Building Committee.
I am a retired family physician who has been a member of St. George Parish for 11 years. I have been married to my wife, Wendy, for 48 years, and we have two children, Brian and Allison. Over the years, I've assisted with baptisms, first communions, confirmations, weddings, and funerals. I have been an altar server and have participated in the training of young altar servers. I was a member of the COVID-19 response team and I have served on the liturgy committee. I currently volunteer for weekend Masses, help maintain the garden, and serve on the Building Committee.
I am the father of two children, Bethanie and Zachary, and am married to Kerry, a member of St. John the Divine. I have been a pastor both in London and in Markham, Ontario. My heart for ministry stems from my parents and their lives of ministry for over 70 years, having started a Christian camp called Camp Medeba in Halliburton, Ontario. I have been a general contractor for over 35 years and have been involved in construction, both residential and commercial, including several churches.
